SHARE OGDEN PLANS VOTE ON FORM OF GOVERNMENT

The City Council here has approved a resolution calling for a special election to see if the voters want to change its form of government to council-mayor.

The election will be held Sept. 11, 1990, in conjunction with the Weber County primary election.Ogden currently has a city-manager form of government, which consists of six council members and a part-time mayor. Every two years, the mayor and council members must seek re-election.

If the new form of government is approved, the council will expand to eight members, and the mayor's position will turn into a full-time job.

According to the resolution, three council members would be elected at-large. Two of those members would seek re-election every two years, and the other would sit on the council for four years.

The change would also expand the term from two to four years in Wards Two and Four. The initial term for Wards One and Three would remain at two years.
